Frequent Damages Raccoons Cause To Your Home And Attic Space
- They chew on electrical wiring
- Raccoons loosen electrical connections by pulling and walking on electric lines
- Compressing the attic insulation by walking and nesting on top, therefore, reducing your attic thermal insulation factor (also referred to as R-Value)
- Defecating urine and feces into the attic insulation can cause severe health concerns
- Raccoon latrine areas where the raccoons commonly drop their fecal matter (raccoon poop) can start showing on the sheetrock inside the home. The raccoon droppings combined with the urine (raccoon pee) may seep through the ceiling. This produces round yellow and/or brown stains on the drywall texturing. Furthermore, raccoons often continue using a latrine location inside the attic for multiple years. These areas can grow in size over time to over 100 lbs. This contaminated area can potentially weaken the rafters and the drywall ceiling. Due to this, drywall often collapses into the living space.
- Raccoons are also notorious for tearing the flexible ductwork in the attic. The majority of the ducting raccoons rip apart are insulated with fiberglass and raccoons often make a nest out of this material.

How to Identify Raccoons and Health Concerns
The black mask and ringed tail make the Northern Raccoon easily recognized. These critters have an average life span of 5-6 years, but they can also live up to 12 years. Raccoons usually breed in January but could be as late as July. If the first litter of raccoon babies doesn’t survive, then the sow will produce again in the same year. Also, the presence of raccoons in your home can cause property damages, diseases and may even harm your pets.
Raccoons can transmit rabies and other potentially harmful diseases such as distemper, leptospirosis, parvovirus, and raccoon roundworm. So, dealing with raccoons in your home or on your property can be a nasty and potentially harmful undertaking.

Raccoon Droppings in Attic Insulation can be dangerous to your health. Also, once a raccoon or raccoons get removed, the attic gets sanitized and the fecal matter removed prior to installing new insulation.

We Understand Common Raccoon Entry Areas
Common entry areas are located on the roof as raccoons are proficient climbers, and finding the openings to your attic can be difficult for the untrained eye. Raccoons will also enter through soffits, eaves, chimney flues, dormers, roof, and gable vents. They like to nest down in wall cavities behind drywall where it’s secluded and warm, and sometimes they even go into the house’s living space in search of food. If a litter of raccoons is born and raised in your house, they will likely return year after year to raise their young. Our specialty is animal damage repair to protect your home from raccoons. BWC also offers full attic restoration services to remove fecal matter and install new duct work and insulation.
Raccoons can chew and scratch their way in from an attic or through wall plaster. Also, they often use cat or dog doors to raid pet food. We deploy every known method and some of our secret tactics to remove these rascals from your residence. If the raccoon is defensive and accessible to get in close quarters, we can use a cable restraint pole to snare it and transport it to a live cage for removal.

Proper Raccoon Removal Demands Personal Protective Equipment
Keeping our technicians’ safe demands wearing Proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Also, we use bright headlamps that correctly identify and navigate the dark attics or crawlspaces. Furthermore, we may wear half or full-face respirators depending on the severity of any fecal matter. Also, we use Tyvek protective coveralls to protect our skin and clothing and Kevlar bite-proof gloves.
Effective raccoon removal demands setting raccoon traps. But rarely do we set traps inside the attics as it’s less effective for raccoon capture. Also, if we catch an animal in an in-home cage trap, we must transport the cage through your house. And, this can create a mess you don’t want in your home! Also, raccoons frequently urinate when trapped in a cage. Furthermore, potential parasites and/or insects such as fleas could fall off the raccoon while transporting it inside the home.
Barnes Wildlife Control Raccoon Exclusion and Repair Experts provide a100% 100% Warranty that we’ll keep raccoons out. It’s far more effective catching raccoons coming out of the house. So, we do this at their entry point or their travel routes on and off the roof. Once we remove all raccoons from your home, we close all entry and exit openings and seal them.

Raccoons Love Climbing Into Chimneys
Yes, raccoons love climbing down the flue of your chimney or fireplace and live inside your hearth box. Female coons often have their litter of kits right on top of the flu damper and many people find this only after she has given birth. The young raccoons make a chattering noise and the homeowner hears this, or the newborn raccoon kits urinate and the liquid matter seeps into the fireplace. Many people call and ask can I just start a fire to get them out, the answer is NO! This is not only inhumane to the raccoons but it puts all occupants of the home at risk for a potential smoke inhalation/fire and can drive the raccoon sow into the home instead of out the chimney flue.

Trapping, structure and habitat modifications, and permanent exclusion repairs for your home and structure bring you success! Countless times customers tell us that they tried Google tips on how to deter raccoons. Google says use coyote urine repellents, strobe and attic lights and loud music. Also they will suggest mothballs(a harmful insecticide chemical named Naphthalene) or liquid ammonia. And then the suggestion of owl and hawk decoys. If you want effective results and long term relief none of these suggestions work! But hiring Barnes Wildlife Control Raccoon Removal Service Does Work!

Please note, raccoons are the primary host of Baylisascaris procyonis, a roundworm that can be harmful to people. Furthermore, infected raccoons can pass roundworm eggs in their feces. People may also get infected by ingesting eggs—anyone who is exposed to environments where raccoons live face that risk. Young children or developmentally disabled persons are at the highest risk for infection as they may be more likely to put contaminated fingers, soil, or objects into their mouths.
